What does happiness mean to you? And how do you know what will make you happy? Watch my brief video to gain a different perspective on happiness.
Our society sells us an idea of what “happiness” means. It tells us that achieving certain things in our lives … the house, the car, the clothes … will make us happy. So, we achieve those things, those status symbols … and then guess what? We aren’t happy! It’s never enough. The milestone keeps getting moved farther and farther away … always out of our reach. The more we chase that idea that the “things’ in our lives are what will make us happy, the further away we will be from it. Happiness is never defined by what is around us.
Real happiness comes from who you are BEING in your life … not what you are DOING. If you allow the world around you to define your value purely based on what you do … you will always feel you aren’t good enough, regardless of the material things you’ve accumulated. By focusing on who you ARE in your world … who you choose to BE … you define your OWN value. Nobody can ever take that away from you. So, shift your mindset. Focus on who you choose to be, not on what you do. Happiness is never “out there.” It is already within you waiting for you to find it. Just like in the Wizard of Oz … “everything you were looking for was right there with you all along.”
